Southern Lakes Wind Riders Club

The Big Queenstown Downwinder.. Huge success on Saturday

Kiters and windsurfers from around the south island were delighted by the blue skies and fresh breezes on Sat to finally take part in this years long distance event from Glenorchy to Pigeon Island on Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown.

Organisers had bad luck this year with the event having a number of postponements before the conditions came right. However all were agreed it was worth the wait.

Santa drops in for a sail at Glenorchy

Southern Lakes Wind Riders Club Xmas sail and social at Glenorchy on Saturday. Santa popped in for a visit. Unfortunately though.. Santa had some bad luck and popped his/her mast, resulting in a rather long wait followed by a rescue from the wonderful John at Kinloch Lodge... me thinks Santa owes John an extra big Xmas pressy. Santa rescue story and photos to follow!
